Analog Radio Waves


When I was a kid, my parents let me listen to my transistor radio all night. I remember that soft glow from the dial on my nightstand.

The idea for this had been percolating for awhile, and frankly I was struggling a bit with the words. I was hoping to find a lofty quote, but the few I found were longer than I wanted (paragraphs, really).

Then I came across a song by the Beach Boys called Magic Transistor Radio. It’s not even really a song, and I’ll tell you right now, I’ve never been a Beach Boys fan. However, the words fit the look I was after–a 60’s and 70s groovy/mod feel.

The main art was done on my iPad Pro with the Procreate app. The screen overprint effect was done with Retro Supply’s Ultimate Screen Printing Kit.
